The stuff you’re thinking about getting will
set you up for furniture and cabinetmaking
but that’s not necessary for making boxes
and small things.

If you’re not out to build cabinetry for your
home or for clients you might not need the
capacity to process large panels of plywood.

For working solid wood the 3 most important
machines, imo, are the planer, jointer and
band saw. Then drill press, router table
and table saw. A bench top drill press is
fine and a router table is easy to make from
a scrap of melamine or a sink cutout. If
not making cabinets large rip and crosscut
capacity on the table saw isn’t needed. I’d
say the one you have will be fine.

A 6” jointer, a 13” planer and a 14” band saw
can all run on the 110v power you have.
